, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo, almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted, of course, by the video. what we think then transpired in benghazi is that opportunistic extremist elements came to the consulate as this was unfolding. >> so there you have it. what do you think about that, and what role does that statement by her make in the concern about her qualifications? >> yeah. you know, chris, one of the things that's amplified some of the concerns around this is we had a classified briefing with about 65 or 70 senators on september the 20th, and i assure you if you were there, you would have thought it was one of the most bizarre briefings ever where we had four, you know, distinguished people there who shared like no information. i was in libya about a week after that. it was a preplanned trip. i didn't go there because of benghazi. obviously benghazi was a big topic, and i sat there with our station chief, our head intelligence person who was there serving after the ambassador had bee
. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. >> in egypt the u.s. embassy in cairo is closed. no one is being allowed in or out of the embassy now. embassy officials say the entrance is blocked by protesters as clashes erupt nearby. massive demonstrations against president morsy threatened the new young government after a degree last week extending his powers to an e uneasy level for some egyptians. americans in cairo going to the embassy for business, please don't. no one is going in or out of the embassy in cairo. >> and finding a way to steer clear of the fiscal cliff. the chief fiscal cliff negotiator tim geithner working with leaders to get things moving. there are just 33 days left to get a deal done. congress breaks for the holidays in just 15 days. dan lothian joins us. so the clock is ticking away. >> after the meeting the president had after he went to southeast asia the lawmakers were optimistic. now you are hearing some pessimistic as the clock winds down. you see the president pushing the bush era tax cut extension for middle class america. the white house doesn't believe this is the com
in cairo is closed. the entrance is blocked by protesters as clashes erupt nearby. >> zebra and s hechlt tland pony ran wild through the streets of new york city. they apparently escaped from a petting zoo. >>> nypd says actress lindsay lohan has been raefed and charged with assault. >> three, two, one. >> only nbc would make a television event out of plugging something in. >> all that -- >> oh, humphries and rondo get into it. officials trying to get control here. >> don't tell me what i think. when i said i didn't have a problem, i don't have a problem. got it? >> and all that matters. >> president obama plans to play host to his old political rival, mitt romney. >> on "cbs this morning." for lesss part of president afford to picko cut spending, invite someone to lunch who can actually afford to pick up the tab. you are probably waking up, wondering if you are a power ball multimillionaire. there's good news and then there's bad news. >> that's right. good news, there were two winning tickets for that record $587 million jackpot. re those ticketse dream lives on only if you live in mis
. -- >> that policy, don, when you watcha what had happened happenn cairo at the embassy there, in been ben at our consulate and a variety of embassy locations around september 11, how do you respond when people ask, is history repeating itself? is this 1979 all over again? >> we saw in cairo, after a day or two, the egyptian government absolutely stepped in and provided the kind of security that we needed. so cairo is a slightly different case. but in benghazi, we see that the government there is not capable of providing the security that we needed there and so, you have a tragedy which was in some senses avoidable and goes beyond the deaths of that's four very brave americans. it really is a foreign policy failure. and so, you need to tie the issue of adequate security for the compound for the larger issue of what our foreign policy is and what our foreign policy image is overseas. >> i would love to have that discussion with you in the future. it's a big discussion and one that we want to have. it's great to have nuthe program. thank you for sharing your thoughts, your memories today. we look f
-- that anti-islamic video that sparked the riots in cairo. that's the confusion, that film or a terrorist attack? they got 20 intelligence reports blaming the film riot in cairo. but, this is critical, those reports were disproved over time. but disproved after petraeus made his initial presentation to congress. so david petraeus believes there's a lot of confusion and a lot of misrepresentation of what he originally told congress when he briefed them initially after the attacks. he wants to go up there tomorrow, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organiz
the mobilization of 75,000 army reservists. joining us now is nbc live from gaza. as peace talks continue in cairo, israel is demanding that hamas stop firing rockets across the border. is there a willingness to do this or has the number of civilian casualties made a cease-fire now much less likely? >> well, you know, the fact that the negotiations are ongoing is an indication that palestinian factions can abide by the truce. in fact, in the past it's been on multiple occasions documented that palestinian factions have been committed to the truce until there's been some kind of violation, if you will, from the israeli side that israel justifies as an act in its own security. nonetheless, palestinian factions say they have abided by it in the past, they would abide by it again in the future if there is one in place. the question is can they get to that agreement in the next couple hours before time runs out. and the question really surrounding the truce have to deal with the cessation of hostilities. israel wants an immediate cessation of hostilities. then enter into negotiations about lifting a fi
about our embassy in cairo egypt. local tv host had played this clip incessantly and raging muslims -- enraging muslims throughout egypt who stormed our embassy and tore down the american flag and put up an islamist flag. a few hours later the -- they said it was over the video even though the next day the president referred to it as an act of terror. four americans were killed including our ambassador. ever since then, our republican friends have been using this terror attack, i'm sorry did i say using? i meant exploiting this terror attack to smear the president in any way they can. as you know, in 9-11-01 a terror attack is a reason to unite and cheer a president and in 9-11-12, it is an excuse to smear a president. there have been rumors of course that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with j
reaction to what had just transpire td hours before in cairo. >> this was not a demonstration. this was an attack by terrorists. >> so i've got mr. obama sitting here. and he's -- i just was going to ask him a couple of questions. >> no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all of the damage that he found in just four years. >> the 47% who are with him, believe that they are victims. >> when he said behind closed doors that 47% of the country considered themselves victims who refuse personal responsibility, think about who he was talking about. >> so there it is. we're two days left. mayor, what stands out for you? >> well, the clinton speech, when he basically put it plain and used simple arithmetic. this was a damaged economy, and now this was a president who faced challenges that haven't been seen since the great depression. the second part, the part where i got fired up, because i'm not replexive that partisan, would they accept tax cuts 10 to one? and all of them said no. >> and bill clinton was making the choice in the final hour
of their embassies were lowered in cairo and. that's a reference flags being torn down and banners black flags. the black banner is a symbol of more than al qaeda but a broader political ambition to establish an islamic state. >> various countries, in to your knowledge, in libya, in egypt and also in yemen they perceive the attack in benghazi not just as a victory for them. a successful one and a mullah for -- model for future attacks. >> analysts say it takes six weeks for the leader to respond to make news events. this is put down to his news security. he knows bin laden's undoing was a courier who relayed these audio and video messages to the web; >> shepard: catherine herridge in washington tonight. attack in benghazi, fox news has learned the house intelligence committee is planning to hold a hearing next week but that hearing will be behind closed doors. no public. sources say they expect the witnesses to include the director of national intelligence, james clapper and the cia director david petraeus. at least 39 people are dead after a magnitude 7.4 earthquake hit off the coast of guate
referred to demonstrations in benghazi growing out of what happened in cairo with the movie. how was the cia, how are our intelligence agencies so incredibly wrong about this? i mean it was not just rice. regarding her confirmation, i can tell you that she probably almost certainly wins confirmation if the white house goes forward with this, and the white house is signaling clearly that that is where the president is heading right now. whether or not he goes through it or not, but democrats, i'd be interested to hear what you say about this, but what i'm hearing democrats from the senate, don't necessarily want this fight right now because it will be three weeks of battles over the rice nomination focusing on benghazi because it will be filibustered. not all republicans will go along with its. the filibuster will not be successful but this will be a bat many that lasts three weeks. >> martha, secretary -- ambassador rice communicated what she had been given to communicate by the intelligence community. senator mccain and senator graham's beef is with the intelligence community, n
bibi says to her about what israel's goals are and again when she goes to cairo and meets with president morsi which is arguably the most important stop on this trip. >> because he's the mediator. >> and president obama has developed a very interesting relationship over the past -- >> i think we have to hold onto morsi. >> with the president of egypt. >> don't you? >> absolutely. >> how important -- >> let's be clear -- >> always had the deal between israel and egypt in the interest of both countries and our country. can we keep that deal? there are some architecture for peace there? >> we're going to try to keep that deal absolutely, but, remember, we're complicit in part of what happened. obama when he took george michel's resignation and basically moved dennis ross out of the white house, he doesn't put a new program on the table. and when america walks away from this peace process or an effort to bring the two sides together and really lay out a plan, violence kicks up. so we have a bit of complicity and you you are seeing right now not a strategic presidency from obam
to jerusalem and cairo. here's dean rhodes. >> secretary clinton will depart today and travel to jerusalem ramallah and cairo leaving. she will meet with our israeli partners to consult on the situation in gaza. >> john: that's ben rhodes. he actually discussed who secretary clinton will and will not be speaking with. >> i can assure you she will be meeting with the palestinian authority. united states has not engaged directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we've set for many years to renounce terrorism to recognize israel's right to exist. >> john: by palestinian authority, i presume he meeds mahmoud abbas who it seems is completely powerless at all because abbas no habla no abbas. we'll be taking your calls when we return. it is "bill press show." 1-866-55-press. >> announcer: chatting with you live at current.com/billpress this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. these talking poin
the compound in central cairo. the protesters, they are actually not targeting the embassy. they have been demonstrating, however, for a week. there has been some fighting with riot police around tahrir square. they've got rocks, tear gas being hurled in the streets. demonstrators, they are trying to force president mohammed morsi to give back some of the sweeping powers that he seized earlier in the week. want to go live to cairo. reza sayah is overlooking tahrir square. is it calm where you are, and are people assuming that things are going to get better? there are a lot of critics who vague the broum brotherhood is really now trying to hijack the process, hijack the constitution and get the president to remain in power, as much power as he can hold on to. >> yeah. many of those critics, suzanne, are behind us. still demonstrating here in tahrir square. in the meantime, major developments unfolding. as we speak right now, egypt's constitutional assembly is voting to approve a draft of egypt's all-important new constitution. this is going to be the backbone, the centerpiece of egypt's dem

on americans. he goes on to say, this seems to be different than cairo attacks. yet the ambassador to the u.n. going out that morning and told everybody it was the tape. what does all this mean to you? >> it means that obviously cbs is not carrying out their responsibilities of informing the american people, but this is not the first action of this nature by a major network, but it is what it is. it's in their dna. what i've been finding out is i've been traveling around the country nonstop for the last two months, has been that americans are fed up. our veterans are angry in a way that i have never seen them angry. i'm seeing active duty people who come over and tell me, i've lost trust. i've lost trust in this commander in chief. i'm telling you, i don't know how much it affects the election and i don't know -- i know there is 1.6 million veterans in florida. they are angry. they have lost their trust in this commander in chief. and they want a full and complete investigation. the only way you're going to get a full and complete investigation is a watergate-type select committee that's bi
